PODCAST: Episode #51- Weird Science (1985)
Updated: Oct 15, 2020
In this month’s episode, Charlie and George strap bras on their heads and power up their super-computer to create some Weird Science! That’s right, they’re travelling back to 1985 to revisit the John Hughes’ teen comedy with Hughes-muse Anthony Michael Hall and the lovely Kelly Le Brock
The brothers talk about the film’s origins (amidst John Hughes’ packed schedule), questionable technology, eye-watering 80’s fashion and an array of villains you love to hate, including the late, great Bill Paxton and one Robert Downey Jr (before he added the Jr)!
As per usual, there’s alternative casting in Coulda Woulda Shoulda whilst Special Features has the boys discuss TV spin-offs and the chances of a remake with today’s gender politics…
